Woman’s Dress, LACMA, c. 1830

This dress was absolutely magnificent in person. The silk organza hardly seemed sturdy enough to hold all the detailing on this dress, but hold it did. The amount of work that must have gone into this dress stuns me, and I’ve hardly seen anything like it in person before. It was rather pink, so don’t let the photos make you think that the dress is darker or more orange.
